The problem is there's nothing for the audience to latch onto and laugh at.

One of the year's dingiest comedies

The comic effect goes limp fast and has little to do with the effort of Segel's Pete to win back the girlfriend of the title (Kristen Bell).

Ok, I give up. The Slackers win. In the last ten years, the Republican Party has had its revenge, the Nerds have had their revenge, and now the Slackers stand sloppy and tall. I stand poleaxed. The latest beating inflicted on my psyche is by Forgetting

An execrable movie that's incredibly uninspired.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall crassly dissolves the gender balance in a vat of acidic testosterone.

The trademark Apatow mix of pasty, media-addled boy-men and the gorgeous, gorgeous women who badger them into an imitation of maturity already feels dated.

If only Jason Segel's screenwriting matched his comic presence. This is an occasionally riotous, but shapeless, romantic comedy, whose only relatable angst is that it's just marginally better than last year's "The Heartbreak Kid" remake.

Feathery light and lazily put together romantic comedy.

It's really hard to like a character when his own movie makes fun of him...

Kunis is not just Peter's savior, but the saving grace of a comedy that is really a series of sketches, a few of which sparkle, and most of which you'll soon forget.

It's not that (Jason) Segel, a TV vet of How I Met Your Mother and one of the CSI series, looks like a normal guy. The problem is that he's also a blue-collar drone when it comes to acting.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

runs into the same snags Vince Vaughn and Jennifer Aniston encountered when they suffered through The Break-Up in 2006

Even though the Hawaii locations are beautiful, without Russell Brand this film would be a big dud.

...while it's likely to be a big hit with audiences, it's not a very good film.

The whole film feels like Apatow and clan are still on their own vacation after last summer's one-two punch.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a lazy, second-hand offering from the Apatow crude-but-sweet assembly line.

Film Threat

While the film has some laugh out-loud moments, it's very poorly constructed and what we see onscreen seems to be the victim of either bad editing, poor direction or a script that was rushed into production too quickly.
| Original Score: 2/5

It's not hard, it turns out, to forget Sarah Marshall. The problem is remembering her.
